Overview

This pathbreaking, multidisciplinary work challenges our unthinking acceptance of such terms as 'Asia Pacific' and 'Pacific Rim.' Clarifying the hidden power relationships and hegemonic struggles that are disguised by ideological constructions of the region, the contributors uncover fundamental contradictions_including the human costs and consequences_that underlie the much-celebrated economic boom. In evaluating the idea of 'Asia Pacific,' the book shifts our focus from abstract relationships between capital and commodities to the human interactions that have played a formative part in the region's constitution. The contributors agree that it is these interactions that constitute the region, rather than the physical boundaries of the Pacific. This revised and updated edition brings in additional essays focusing on conceptualizations of the Pacific, considers more fully interactions among countries, and strongly emphasizes peoples within the Pacific, who are routinely ignored in most discussions of the 'Rim.'

Booknews
Fifteen essays, by contributors from the fields of anthropology, sociology, history, English, and political science, explore the definitional difficulties inherent in the formulation of the term "Pacific Rim" and its various cognates. Various contradictions within discussions of the "Asian-Pacific" are explored in the contexts of EuroAmerican and Asian discourses, political economy, and cultural and social formulations. Some of the specific topics explored include: global sourcing and regional divisions of labor, market dependency in US-East Asian relations; the Asian-American perspective of the Rim; and Pacific island responses to US and French hegemony.
